Our first visit to Scotland was to Rothesay on the Isle of Bute during the summer of 1996 on a week's coach tour. We spent the first half of the week here and then moved up to Strathpeffer which is not far from Inverness.
Rothesay is quite an interesting place and I can imagine it being very popular in the Victorian era.
We spent one day just touring the whole of the island which is very beautiful indeed.
We stayed at the Glenburn Hotel in Rothesay which is only a few minutes walk from the centre of the town. This is a view from the promenade.
The weather in Scotland is as spectacular as its scenery. In the space of one day you can have sunshine, rain, inevitable mist, gales etc. and the weather does change ever so quickly.
- Pros:Spectacular, dramatic scenery
- Cons:The weather can sometimes be unkind
- In a nutshell:Must be seen to be believed
If you enjoy looking at flowers and wandering around gardens take a look at Ardencraig Gardens which are about 10... more travel advice
The Chapel in Mount Stuart really is unbelievably beautiful and I think work began on the Chapel in 1896. more travel advice
